EPDM rubber is seen as one of the most efficient and durable materials for roofing. In fact, it’s widely used in residential and commercial applications worldwide and in the UK.
Why choose EPDM rubber for your new roofing system?
Rubber is a highly durable roofing material, as it doesn‘t wear easily and has a life expectancy of 50 years with proper maintenance. EPDM roof is designed for flat and low-sloped surfaces. It keeps the water from penetrating the structure, preventing leaks. This makes it a top choice when waterproofing a roof structure. It’s ideal for extensions, garages, green roofs, dormer roofs, with either a warm deck or cold deck design.
Easy and Low Cost Installation
Installing EPDM rubber roof can be less expensive than other roofing types. The material is lightweight and relatively easy to put in place. The usual installation method uses roofing adhesive. The fully adhered system is secured and glued to the deck.
Unlike other traditional roofing materials and systems like felt, EPDM rubber roof requires very little to no maintenance. Its waterproofing membranes are permanently flexible with a life expectancy of at least 50 years. The Rubber roof is extremely resistant to ageing, however, we would still recommend a yearly inspection to ensure peace of mind.
EPDM is considered an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional methods, using eco friendly materials and applied with little energy. The government and International Kyoto Ecology recommend EPDM rubber roofing. It is said to be the best value sustainable eco- sound roofing.
